Heritage Academy hosted its 2018 Heritage Academy Golf Tournament on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at the Caswell Pines Golf Club, in Yanceyville, North Carolina. The four-person Captain’s Choice tournament featured a clear, but hot, day on a challenging course. The event hosted 95 golfers playing on 24 teams.
Heritage Academy set a fundraising goal of $20,000 for the tournament. The tournament fundraising was directed to the Academy’s new campus building fund. The school exceeded all expectations and raised $21,262.06 net.
Heritage Academy had five major tournament sponsors this year. Major tournament sponsors included B & L Construction, Hammock Dairy, Haymes Brothers, Moss Home Improvement and Roofing, and Southstone Behavioral Healthcare.
“This was a great day for Heritage Academy. Our fundraising golf tournament received a lot of support from community leaders and business people,” Ann Haymes, Heritage Academy head of school, said. “We are very grateful to our golfers, parents, and supporters for exceeding our fundraising goals. The entire school is grateful for such a successful event.”
The top three winning golf teams were recognized in the final standings.
The first place team was sponsored by Gregory Lumber. Elvis Phelps, Freddie Phelps, Neil Phelps, and Alan Wells won large “31” Brand tote bags full of insulated cups, coolers, PROV balls and beach towels. The top prizes were provided by Jason and Sharon Yeatts.
Moss Home Improvement sponsored the second place team. Team members Ron Cooke, Steve Chromy, Jason Yeatts and Ramsey Yeatts were extremely competitive in 2018. Chromy, J. Yeatts, and R. Yeatts were 2017 Heritage Academy Golf Tournament winners. They won four sleeves of Titleist Soft Tour golf balls and Anyday Greens Fees to Caswell Pines Golf Club, donated by Caswell Pines Golf Club.
The Capital Insurance team claimed third place. Kevin Dill, Harold Dill, Jesse Lane, and James Shellhorse each won a sleeve of Titleist Velocity golf balls.
The Longest Drive contest was won by Carlos Flores, who claimed the Outdoor Freestyle folding rocker prize. Kenny Payne won Closest to the Pin. His prize included a golf umbrella, golf chair, and cap donated by Christopher Eastwood of Edward Jones. The 50/50 raffle was won by Phil D’Domenicus, representing Catalpa Cottage, who donated his half of the raffle back to Heritage Academy. His final donation pushed the total earnings from the fundraiser over the $21,000 threshold.
Heritage Academy also showcased the conceptual designs for a new Heritage Academy campus. The golfers and businessmen, and attending supporters had a chance to see several versions of the proposed campus layout. All 2018 Heritage Academy Golf Tournament fundraising was dedicated to the Academy’s building fund.
